A few nights ago, a friend and I stopped at a Hartford, Connecticut CVS Pharmacy before going to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. I purchased a 20 ounce soda and my friend purchased a bag of a brand new type of dark chocolate covered pretzels. The pretzels that my friend purchased are Rold Gold Dark Dipped Bavarian Twists and they are just one of several new varieties of chocolate covered pretzels offered by Rold Gold.
When my friend first asked me if I wanted to try the Rold Gold dark chocolate covered pretzels, I said “No, thank you.” After hearing my friend repeated;y say how good these pretzels tasted, I asked if I could try them and now, I’m glad that I asked him.
Normally, pretzels are not an item that I eat an abundance of, but I found that these dark chocolate covered pretzels were too tasty to eat just one. I am so impressed with these chocolate covered snacks, that I have decided to write a product review of them. Presented here, as a service to the consumer at large, is one food writer’s product review of Rold Gold Dark Dipped Bavarian Twists.
The net weight of the standard sized package of Rold Gold Dark Dipped Bavarian Twists is seven ounces. According to the package label, the container holds seven 1 ounce servings of pretzels and one serving is approximately two pretzels. The pretzels themselves are quite large and I think that two of them would probably be enough to satisfy most people’s appetites.
The regular retail price charged for one seven ounce package of Rold Gold dark chocolate covered pretzels at Hartford, Connecticut area CVS Pharmacies is approximately $2.99. While that price might seem a little high, I think that the price is reasonable, considering the great taste, number of servings and overall high quality the pretzels have to offer.
The texture of any food item is an important factor when the item is being reviewed, but I think even more so when reviewing this item. The pretzels are firm, as they should be, but not overly hard. The ample serving of dark chocolate that coats each pretzel adds another dimension of texture to the product.
I think that the chocolate coating almost makes it easier to bite down on the pretzels and it certainly does make them more interesting. The overall mouth feel offered by these pretzels is very pleasant and they remind me of special occasion type treats.

Taste / Flavor
The flavor offered by Rold Gold Dark Dipped Bavarian Twists is very pleasing. The pretzels are salted just right and their crunchiness seems to accentuate their baked in goodness.
The dark chocolate that coats these snack treats speaks of high quality and it is not overly sweet. Through the years, I have eaten several varieties of chocolate covered pretzels and have found most of them to be rather ho – hum in flavor. Not so with these treats, their flavor offers a great combination of sweet and salty tastes that is quite satisfying.
Rold Gold Dark Dipped Bavarian Twists are packaged in a dark brown bag that is appealing in design. The front of the bag features a blue and gold label and the rear label lists all pertinent ingredient and nutritional information.
Rold Gold Dark Dipped Bavarian Twists are large, delicious chocolate covered pretzels that are a cut above any other variety of chocolate covered pretzels that I have eaten. The dark chocolate that coats these pretzels is extremely tasty and the combination of sweet and salty tastes in these pretzels is very pleasing.
These Rold Gold dark chocolate covered pretzels are brand new and the only store that I’ve seen carry them so far, is CVS Pharmacy. Priced at approximately $2.99 per package, these chocolate covered pretzels are highly recommended by this food writer.
